Default Playing with new lens

So a friend of mines camera died so she shipped me her zoom lens and her fixed 50 lens to use since my auto focus is fried on my lens and because she's awesome.

I went to the DP today to play with the zoom a bit. Not the greatest pictures, the focus is really slow and the light was really harsh but a few of them turned out ok

First a couple from the other day playing with the new lens

The action shots didn't turn out that good but some of them made me laugh.

Traveler jumping over Kaylee and Kaylee not caring

She thought I threw food to her. She was not amused when she found out it was a tennis ball

And these two are from when I still was just using manual:

Riding on a bike with my dog, talking on a phone, using MF and taking a picture= Multitasking for the win.

Ok, done bombarding you guys with pictures. I've been really playing with my camera and practicing lately which is why I've been annoying everyone with them

Lovely!! Did you like the 50mm? What is the f-stop on it? I'm trying to decide between that and a 35mm.

I haven't gotten out and played with it yet. I was planning to at the DP today but I had to leave early and I never got to it. It's on my to do list for tomorrow.

I'll bring it Sunday though! The f-stop is 1.8. The girl who sent it to me just adores it and said she loves it for action and portraits

AWESOME pictures! I love the one of Kaylee jumping! She's so adorable! She reminds me a lot of Chloe for some reason. Traveler is soooo handsme, and I LOVE this picture:

Those are all great! I love the very last one with the tennis ball.

I LOVE my 50mm f/1.8 lens.. I've actually never used it for action shots, always break it out for my portrait style shots.

Sweet! That's exactly what I'm looking at... Except, you know, for Nikon.
